Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Hon. Edward J. Davila: Hearing as to David Russell Foley held on 1/29/2013. Sentencing as to David Russell Foley set for 5/13/2013 01:30 PM in Courtroom 4, 5th Floor, San Jose before Hon. Edward J. Davila. (Court Reporter Irene Rodriguez.) (ecg, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 1/29/2013) (Entered: 01/29/2013)
Sentencing on 5/13.  Let's see if that happens or if it's pushed back even farther.
Now it's scheduled for July 29. 
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

I'm guessing they are hoping that by the time it ACTUALLY goes to trial, they would have forgotten what they were going for.

Wager on how long until he actually gets sentenced?  Since PBJ left, I'm not convinced that he'll send me my money when I win.

It doesn't keep me up at night, but I'm more than a little curious to see how it finally plays out. Thanks for the updates.

Just played UltraCade in arcade, and wow, this is tragic...  Even sent a message to the guy wondering what was up with this failing, as you'd think by 2013 that somehow, people would be able to license old-school (and semi old-school...) ROMs in machines that could be put out on the floor by operators/FEC/etc.

Well, the company that bought Ultracade from him salvaged what they could.

EDIT: Every once in a while someone will come across an old Ultracade on site and then take to the internet proclaiming that they've ripped off Hyperspin.  :lol 
Maybe Dave should sue.

The one Ultracade I've seen "on location" was such a pile of crap that I just walked away from it.

Mostly due to neglect - it was just tired and needed to die..

His attorneys were granted a continuation until December.  He's scheduled to be sentenced then.  That's happened numerous times now.

Technically Tempest could be played on a track ball.  Spinners are two way optical.  A typical trackball could be too if you ignored any vertical movement.

Looks like he's scheduled to be sentenced on 12/18 at 9:00 AM.  There was a motion entered yesterday to reduce his sentence. Docs attached.

I have have also purchased back from Global
VR the domain name from the original company, ULTRACADE.COM.

http://www.ultracade.com/

I've always wondered if he would sue Hyperspin if he still had the rights to Ultracade.

I believe the wager was $5, and my position was that he was going to spend at least a year in prison.  Maybe it was six months.  I'm comfortable with either.

Document labelled 117-1.pdf in your attachment is quite the laugh riot if you need one.  I'd sum it up as "nobody died and I didn't know it was illegal."

He's going to do some serious time.

By sentence, are you saying jail time?  If so, I'll take the under.  I'll guess that he doesn't spend any time, gets a hefty fine, probation and a bunch of community service hours.

Let's make this interesting.  How about $5?   ;D

Nah, but seriously, I'll take the over.  Any weird BS happens like delayed sentencing or he commits suicide and the bet's off.

In for $5.  Same number I had in mind, Jimmy.  I got under a year and a year is a push.  Suicide is win-win-win.

"I have been on supervised release for four and a half years, without incident. Rather than
wallow in self-pity, or blame others for my situation, I have taken on the responsibility for my actions
and have been rebuilding my life and making amends to those affected by the case at hand. I am
continually attacked on a daily basis on internet forums
for classic games and investments, and have to
live not only with the fact that I am a convicted felon, but that there are those people out there that will
never let me forget, and will let everyone that I do business with know it."

He tried to trademark the name M.A.M.E.
http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=76627578&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

If you believe him, it was to prevent anyone other than MAMEDev from using it.
If you believe MAMEDev, it was so he could either market his own stuff using the MAME name, or destroy MAME because his own Ultracade machines would be worth more without MAME on the scene.

I tend to believe he wanted to stamp out competition.  I cut him some slack for being helpful to Ultracade owners who have posted here with problems.
EDIT: I don't think anyone here has an axe to grind from any personal dealings with him.  This isn't like Dave whatever his real name is at Ram Controls.


The third document lays out pretty plainly how the charges arose.
After taking over sales of Ultracade products, Global VR wondered why the distributors weren't buying game packs so they called them up.
Turns out they were still buying game packs from Dave.  :lol
Fired next day, then they sicked the FBI on him.

Sounds like a fustercluck of a merger where he tried to sneak millions of dollars of debt into the deal without them realizing it until the last minute.

I always suspected pbj of being that Verizon employee in Texas who outsourced his own job to Chinese devs.
He had to delete all his posts to get rid of any time stamps that would have been during work hours.   ;)
